The way [Kevin] managed to convey all his points and emotions was so captivating, inspiring and moving that he kept me all the time on the edge of my seat, on the verge of falling down from it!
Kevin’s story works at so many different levels but his willingness to share details of his feelings from the depths of despair to the great joys in his life took the entire audience on a most memorable journey.
Keep in mind that these are young men, fifteen years old, where image in front of their peers is paramount! Kevin achieves this feat through humorous anecdotes, sharing his personal life experiences, expert firsthand knowledge of public speaking from years of participation and competition in Toastmasters, and a natural empathy and ability to listen that is quickly evident when one first meets Kevin.
I just wanted to thank you, Russ, for making the trip down to Medicine Hat and giving a great presentation to our youth. The remarks and evaluations were consistent – you were inspiring and added a nice personal touch to our day!
Thank you so much for speaking to our 4H group at our year end banquet! You [Russ] are the first speaker that has held our kids’ attention for a full 45 minutes, which is pretty amazing! Your stories were inspiring and entertaining. You really do have a magic touch talking to youth! Lots of great comments from the adults as well.

Russ Dantu has the ability to learn from some bad decisions in his youth, and present them in an interesting and professional manner, to allow his audience to make a choice, and steer away from their potential troubling future situations.
Thank You for coming today. Many people in my family have let go of the rope of Life. Though this saddens me greatly, I may have thought at one time to do the same. However I have a great husband & three great children to help guide and Love. Many Thanks for sharing your trials, tribulations, rescue and exhilarations. You have touched me. Stay well, God Bless.
